  • We are finalizing details with public and private sector partners who are planning to share their data sets (government, election, health, HIV, mining) with a valid license to the commons. We'll make the detailed announcements later.

MapaTime! is a space and time for mapping, geo-spatial data, and places and causes you care about.

Come as you are. Everybody is welcome. No previous experience necessary.

We'll teach you how to map, have fun with maps, and make a positive impact on other peoples lives.

We meet every last Saturday of the month to collaboratively work on maps, learn about open (geo)data, and teach each other about various tools and techniques for mapping. Our goal is to provide an accessible, friendly space and time for humanitarian mapping, collaborative learning, data exploration, and map creation using open mapping tools and technologies.
